Once deemed a gimick to show our friends how fast our connection was.

Now they are busted peak-times while everyone tries to show their ISP how slow their connection is

Apparently PN intend to open their new speedtester to the world when they have the hardware it is to run on installed. Given what we've seen with other speedtesters I'd of thought that keeping it restricted to PN IPs only, at least at first, would have been a good idea. As soon as it is announced I bet it is quickly getting hammered until it is discredited like all the other testers.
